Techplast Antifouling Coating

Techcoat Service’s extensive work in the resistance of scale adherence has enabled Techcoat Services to develop a new and innovative non-toxic, non-leaching, non-ablative antifoul.

This antifoul works on the principal of low Surface Free Energy combined with an extremely high cross link density coating resulting in a uniform, hard, smooth coating that resists fouling and is not consumed as it ages. Effectively resulting in an antifoul that has a life measured in years rather than months. An added benefit is that this low Surface Free Energy results in an extremely low coefficient of friction, this should lead to improve vessel speed and lower fuel consumption.

Surface Free Energy is determined by measuring the “critical surface tension”, a product with low critical surface tension has a low surface free energy.

The coating is suited to commercial aluminium, fibreglass and steel vessels.

Techcoat Service’s is ready to commercialise this product range and it will be applied by fully trained and licensed applicators. Each license will cover a specific geographic area, involve full product training, application and mixing equipment and entitle the applicator to exclusive application within that locality.
